About Nadden

  1. A few things…..The ruins on the shield of house Royce give the letters to spell Royce. Research will give you the meaning of those Anglo-Saxon ruins. Take a look;) “Dance with me then” ……Anagram- “white chanted men” or “White men chanted” or “Men chanted white” or “Chanted white men” And Waymar is fore filling part of the a Lightbringer prophecy. The first forging. His brothers fore fill the other two. The wildling camp is just a green dream that Will is having.
  2. I’ve observed that all swords in AGOT prologue are a personification of it’s owner. “Alive with light” is like “fire of the Gods” language. Note also that the word “shard” is used to describe the sword. Shard, like a shard of glass, means that it’s a part of a great whole. Moonlight…moon blood….blood and fire….life fire. Life fire of Ghost? “Ghost light”
  3. I feel that a big part of the prologue is a green dream( wildling camp) Most of the prologue is symbolic and less literal. This makes it very difficult for a visual interpretation. As far as how they got south of the wall there’s this: Word play: Gared says, “If it snows, we could be a fortnight getting back, and snow’s the best we can hope for.” So “fortnight”....night fort I’m thinking Gared and the wolf went through the weirwood mouth in reverse.
  4. Branches stirred gently in the wind, scratching at one another with wooden fingers. Will opened his mouth to call down a warning, and the words seemed to freeze in his throat. Perhaps he was wrong. Perhaps it had only been a bird, a reflection on the snow, some trick of the moonlight. A Reflection on the snow would have been a shadow. Raven like:) A symbolic raven.
  5. The great sentinel was right there at the top of the ridge, where Will had known it would be, its lowest branches a bare foot off the ground. Will slid in underneath, flat on his belly in the snow and the mud, and looked down on the empty clearing below.(AGOT PROLOGUE)
  6. Lord Eddard Stark dismounted and his ward Theon Greyjoy brought forth the sword. “Ice,” that sword was called. “brought forth” For”ward” Four”ward” Fourth”ward” Was Theon the fourth ward? Or was “Ice” the fourth sword? Theon= tool of the Gods (defined as) Is Theon Ned’s sword?
  7. Awoiaf.Westeros.org A person with greensight sometimes dreams as other people, but the green dreams are different, filled with symbolic meaning, images, and metaphors of what is to come. The meaning behind the dreams is not always obvious, but the dreamer experiences the fulfillment of visions in the unfolding of events. Supposedly these dreams can concern the dreamer or another person, but the dreamer will be able to tell the difference. Greenseers might also dream of their own deaths. Wargs have been known to also possess this ability. Greenseers, the wise men of the Cotf, reputedly possessed the greensight. Some crannogman are also known to have greensight. One of them is Jojen Reed, who has unnaturally green eyes. It is possible that this is the result of his advanced greensight abilities.
  8. Two things, you’ll notice that they dismounted when they heard the wolf howl. Somewhere off in the wood a wolf howled. Will pulled his garron over beneath an ancient gnarled ironwood and dismounted. And the description of the “great rock”, which is symbolic, matches that of the dead Mother Direwolf. AGOT Prologue, “Half-buried in bloodstained snow, a huge dark shape slumped in death. Ice had formed in its shaggy grey fur,...”
  9. To you Yaya i’ll say that the wildling camp is a green dream. And that we will need to look beneath the narrative at the symbolism to get the answers we are seeking. Westeros.org says A person with greensight sometimes dreams as other people, but the green dreams are different, filled with symbolic meaning, images, and metaphors of what is to come. The meaning behind the dreams is not always obvious, but the dreamer experiences the fulfillment of visions in the unfolding of events. Supposedly these dreams can concern the dreamer or another person, but the dreamer will be able to tell the difference. Greenseers might also dream of their own deaths.
  10. I think you’re really onto something here. You have a few of the pieces and a good idea of what the picture looks like. To further your ideas I should point out that all of the weapons in the prologue match their owners like you pointed out with Gared. Like the other weapons in the Prologue each owner is actually symbolically the hilt of their weapon. And to add another piece to your puzzle I can tell you that the stump where Gared is beheaded is where lightning struck the Ironwood tree from the prologue. And because I can’t resist it and because I loved reading what you wrote another great little morsel is that Fat Tom and Desmond the two “guards”that dragged Gared symbolically lineup with the shaggy little garrons that Gared was guarding. please continue your reread’s. The word play and symbology will continue to bubble up and you will find some of the missing pieces for us. Gared maybe the hilt of the dragonglass. Sam is symbolically the hilt of the dragon glass dagger he used to kill his Other. ASOS Samwell chapt.(I found that the torch in this chapter lined up with Gared. The one Grenn is holding). What do you think? I would also love to read your piece on Jon’s obsidian dagger. I just Realized looking back on this thread that there are quite a few people who have done lots of great analysis. Then I thought my tone came off as “a bit of a know it all.” Truth, I’ve spent a little bit of time analyzing a prologue and was excited to share. I’m a novice and I hope you’ll understand:) @Seams I read your Theon = Ice and I really liked it. There’s lots more sword stuff in the prologue. Waymar’s mouth being a “hard line”, gives the image of wear the blade inserts to the hilt:) The quote, “It was a splendid weapon, castle-forged, and new-made from the look of it.” and we find out later that the hilt had 3 sapphires, “Another produced a broken sword with three sapphires in the hilt.” (A Jon chapt. 58) This gives us evidence comparing both Waymar and his sword. Martin had to wait to give us his eye color. Eye color matches the gems. And we needed Waymar’s eyes to change. Gems also explain the “hard glitter” in Gared’s eyes. Lastly, There’s a Samwell chapter when he uses the dragonglass to kill the WW that explains and points to sword owners symbolically representing their hilt. Here’s the quote, “Dolorous Edd had said, “I knew a man once who wore his sword on a chain around his neck like that. One day he stumbled, and the hilt went up his nose.” Humble follower
  11. Gared says “we could be a fortnight get it back”. “Fortnight”, Nightfort......
  12. I am following the story arc of Gared, the first character we are introduced to, from the AGOT prologue. We see that he left the Wall approximately nine days prior to arriving at the Wildling‘s camp. We also learned later that he had visited Craster’s keep a day before arriving at the Wildings camps. After Ser Waymar Royce and Will are killed, reading the obvious clues, we see that Gared was apprehended south of the wall near Winterfell. He was considered a deserter and beheaded. His head was, later, sent to Jeor Mormont at the Wall. Are there any theories out there about the tension between Waymar and Gared. I believe that it is more than just a general dislike of one another. I believe something happened at Craster’s keep. Also, can anyone prove that Gared has the ability to warg? I’ve developed, a complete (albeit some holes), interesting, and detailed story arc for Gared. Is anyone interested in taking a short journey of discovery with me? I can start by telling you 2 things Gared is absolutely connected to the dead Direwolf found after his beheading and that he returned to Craster’s keep. I feel like the pattern of his story arc is very revealing to the overall patterns of the series. And the archetype of his character reveals and/or supports the missing pieces of the histories and legends that so many people of the fandom have already revealed.
